, sara. every u.s. president hopes to be the one that ends the israeli/palestinian crisis. but peace has rarely seemed less likely. earlier i spoke with a senior fellow at the hoover institution. he singled out the obama administration for what he calls its indifference. >> we have to go back and re-examine the diplomatic setting, if you will. people will be pushed to say, we can't afford to ignore this region. we can't afford to ignore this conflict because we look back on the last four years and the indifference, if you will, of the obama administration to what's happening on the west bank in gaza. and i think there will be pressure. there will be pressure from egypt, from turkey. there will be pressure from qatar. these are the places that are most sympathetic to hamas. >> discussing the u.s. response to the israeli/palestinian crisis. >>> we've got a lot more planned for you this saturday night. here's what else we're working on. the new reality and a rude awakening for the gop. get with it or keep losing. >>> the new faces of congress, gay, bisexual, hindu. meet those making capitol
that this could have a crushing impact on the u.s. economy. what are they saying about this? >> well, that's the problem for policymakers. i do think both republicans and democrats they want a deal. leaders want a deal because this really could be an economic catastrophe. i mean, that's what something that ben bernanke warned repeatedly. put politics aside for a little bit and try to get a deal. but both sides want to get the best deal possible and you're in the going to see any deal anytime soon because we have until january 1st. >> so you're saying they're going to wait until the last second. >> last second, up to christmas, if not new year's. this week when congress comes back and into next week, you see jockeying for leverage. that's what's going to happen. no major deal is going to reach -- be reached much before christmas if there is a deal. >> no plan for bob cusack celebrating the new year. you'll be on the hill waiting for a deal. we'll continue the conference. i appreciate it. switching gears, just into us at cnn, new damage estimates from superstorm sandy. to alison kosik live f
that the u.s. doesn't go into a recession? >> well, first i want to say the metaphor fiscal cliff is probably the wrong one. you step off a cliff, that's your last step. for many politicians, the real metaphor is it's a slope. they gradually go into these tax increases and spending cuts. they feel they can turn around and walk back up the slope, retroactively reverse the changes. in that circumstance, in that scenario, it creates a lot of uncertainty for businesses and for taxpayers. what will our taxes be next year? how are we going to make some plans for our business or personal finances? it's that uncertainty that's going to, i think, have adverse effects for the economy. >> okay. that makes a lot of sense. michael jones, how do you want to invest here with all this? >> i think there are times when the market is really simple. don't fight the fed. you certainly don't want to fight the fed when they've got the ecb, the bank of japan, the people's bank of china, and virtually every other central bank on their side. you've had unprecedentedly aggressive monetary stimulus. we have open-ended c
was interviewed by the fbi, but it's not clear if broadwell has been questioned and if she will be. a u.s. official said petraeus was never a target of an investigation and that a tip about an affair led to that probe. now, general petraeus was scheduled to testify next week about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. now what happens now that he's gone? suzanne kelly is in washington with that part of this big story. >> susan, as washington reels from the announcement not only that david petraeus is stepping down from the post, but also from the admission he was having an extramarital affair, a u.s. official has said the counter intelligence unit was investigating a tip that he was having an affair because they needed to determine whether there was a potential security risk. the official telling cnn there was no suggestion that the fbi was investigating petraeus for any possible wrongdoing. now, if there were an official investigation focused on the cia director, that would have been something that the congressional oversight committees would have been briefed on. it's a matter of s
business. u.s. stock futures are flat this morning. >> the markets had a rough day yesterday. chris teens romans here to explain this big selloff. is there an explanation? >> can you see the sectors reacting to a second obama administration. let me show you what it looked like, 313 points, the first dow close below 13,000 in three months. that was the worst day of the year. more than 2% down. when i talk about the internals of the market, i'm talking about banks, insurers, cole companies, energy companies, they fell because, in fact, they think they're going to have higher costs. the markets think they're going to have higher costs in a second obama administration. you saw some obama care related stocks like hospitals up on the assumption that obama care is now secure. the internals showed us how investors in different sectors were reacting to a second obama presidency. but there were also concerns over europe and the fiscal cliff and the fact that now you have this election out of the way, you still have the very big problems still facing us. debt crisis, markets started to turn yesterda
are learning new details on iran's attempt to shoot down an unmanned u.s. aircraft. last week two russian-designed iranian warplanes fired and missed the drone as it flew in international air space. the pentagon says this will not change america's mission in the region. >> the united states communicated to the iranians we'll continue to conduct surveillance flights in international waters over the arabian gulf consistent with long standing practice in our commitment to security in the region. martha: peter doocy is live in washington. if this happens as we are now learning over a week ago, why didn't when find out about it before the election? >> reporter: the pentagon says they kept the lid on details of this incident until yesterday because the drone mission was classified. but a spokesman said it was a routine surveillance mission to monitor maritime shipping and this unmanned, unarmed drone never flew over iranian turf. >> our aircraft was never in iranian air space. it was always flying in international air space. the international recognized territorial limit is 12 nautical miles of
, chris lawrence. back to that fbi investigation, a u.s. official tells cnn that the fbi was not investigating them for any wrong doing, it was just about protecting him from blackmail, but that explanation is not setting well for some. >> the idea that the fbi is investigating the cia director for an extra marital affair is extraordinary. i have never seen it happen, and it smacks of george orwell. it's more to do than with sex. there is something going on they can't explain. >> this also raised questions regarding the role of the white house and the timing of the announcement. >> this is the key question right now in front of everybody. how extraordinary would it be that you have this type of fbi investigation into your cia director and the president is not informed of it? the word is circulating that the president was not aware that only one petraeus came to him, but it really seems to believe that someone in the white house didn't know that the fbi didn't inform the white house in some fashion. >> earlier, we talked to fran townsend who thought back to her days in the

involvement in this. they're going to broker a deal. this has been a tradition of the u.s. to come in when tensions flare to work something out and hopefully a lasting peace not one that just lasts a couple of years. >> first thing that struck me when i saw that hillary clinton with benjamin netanyahu was it didn't matter that netanyahu backed romney. all of that time wasted, all of that money wasted perhaps. speaking today with netanyahu. >> president obama asked me to come to israel with a very clear message. america's commitment to israel's security is rock solid and unwavering. that's why we believe it is essential to de-escalate the situation. the rocket attacks from terrorist organizations inside gaza on israeli cities and towns must end and a broader calm restored. >> so you hear hillary clinton there. israel saying some of the conditions that they want out of this cease fire would be having no more rockets fired out of gaza. soldiers patrolling the frontier would, in fact, not be attacked. weapons, stockpiles
